Few things are more overwhelming than moving homes. And when you’re relocating to another state, things can get even more stressful. But if you come at your move with a strategy and start tackling your to-do list early in the process, you can minimize the stress and set yourself up for a smooth transition. Below are some pointers on how you can do just that!

Get Ready for the Move

At least a month before your relocation, start putting the pieces in place. If you are moving in less than a month, then start acting immediately!

  • When you’re ready to buy a new home, reach out to the real estate pros at Styl Properties!
  • Create a budget for your move. Hiring professional movers can reduce stress and free up your time to focus on other things, but you want to ensure you have prepared for the costs.
  • Visit the city you are moving to so that you can get a feel for the living environment and amenities.
  • If you haven’t landed a job yet in your new city, research the local job market and temp agencies.
  • Start packing for the move early to give yourself plenty of time to declutter and get organized. Your entire move will go smoother!

Along with visiting your new city, start setting up your life before you arrive.

  • Cancel your current utilities, and set up utilities in your new home.
  • Forward all your mail to your new address, and notify the postal service, your banks, and any other important accounts of your address change.
  • Get your medical records from your current doctor so that you can give them to your new doctor.
  • Connect with the local DMV to update your license and registration.

Handle Business

If your small business is coming with you, you will need to tackle some administrative responsibilities to ensure a smooth transition.

  • Hire a formation service to set up an LLC in Nebraska.
  • Register your business name with the state.
  • Conduct market research to get an idea of what customers in your new area need and learn about the competitors you are up against.
  • Learn about the local zoning laws, the licenses and permits you must apply for, and the taxes you should plan for.

Start planning your move as soon as you can, and your experience will go much smoother. Strategize the details, set your new home up before you get there, and transition your business along the way. In no time, you’ll be settling into your new home, ready to dive into your next chapter!
